Strictly Come Dancing professional Amy Dowden is set to feature in the new series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on BBC next week alongside other famous faces from shows like Love Island and Loose Women.
Dowden, who hails from Caerphilly in Wales, will compete alongside Dragons' Den's Sara Davies on the show.
Davies also featured on Strictly Come Dancing in 2021 as a contestant - paired with Aljaž Skorjanec.
The Strictly pair will now swap the dance floor for the antiques show as they compete against other celebrities to uncover the best antiques and make the most money at auction.
Dragons’ Den star Davies said: “I’d always heard what an incredible adventure Antiques Road Trip is.
“Being with Amy made it even more special for me, and to be able to spend that time together and share the experience was just brilliant.”
Dowden is currently taking treatment after announcing in June that she had undergone a mastectomy following a stage three breast cancer diagnosis.
She took to Instagram last week to give fans a health update revealing she was taking part in her fifth round of chemotherapy.
This followed the Strictly professional - who is not competing in the 2023 series of the BBC show due to her cancer battle - revealing she had taken "the hardest step so far" in her treatment, shaving her hair off.
Who will be on the new series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip?
Strictly professional Amy Dowden and Dragons' Den's Sara Davies are not the only famous faces taking part in the new series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip which will air on BBC Two and iPlayer next week.
The other famous faces taking part in the new series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip are:
Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti (Love Island UK 2022 winners)
Gemma Collins (reality star) and Melvin Odoom (BBC Radio 1 presenter)

Geeta and Krishnan Guru-Murthy (news anchor siblings)
Paul Merton and Suki Webster (husband-and-wife comedy duo)
Christine McGuinness (documentary-maker) and Colson Smith (Coronation Street)

Sanclimenti said it had been a “pleasure” competing on the show, adding: “There was healthy competition between Ekin and I, and we had lots of fun as we supported each other through the experience.
“I learned a lot about antiques and how appearances can be deceiving; something may look like it could be worth a lot, but it may just be more sentimental value.”
Sinitta said the show provided the “perfect opportunity” for her to spend some time with Fox after they had tried to catch up for years.
“We laughed non-stop like time had stood still. It felt so cool driving through the country lanes like pop music’s answer to Thelma and Louise,” she added.
